I'm hoping that maybe someone might be able to put some light on this subject for me. I like most others are trying to regain my youth, and would love to find a bike like I had in the early 70's

I have included the ONLY picture of the ole girl I have.

any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Upon review the chain guard and name plate doesn’t look like the slingshot.

Well, looking at the posted pics I would say Huffy Rail it is.

Yeah definitely looks like a huffy 5 speed rail. All the way down to the little bit of the chain guard decal you can see and the chain is for sure low enough it's going to a derailleur.

It IS a Huffy Rail. It is probably a 68. I am not sure if they used tall sissy bars in 67. 69 Rails used the Flaming Stack guard. In 70 they changed the frame. 66 the shifter had a mount on the frame. So it must be a 67 or 68

The early 70's had some strange clothing. '74 I was 20 and I have to tell you NO ONE will see any picture of me in the kind of getups I wore back then. It is just too damn embarrassing.

I bet before Christmas one comes up for sale. The purple Rails are pretty common especially Huffy badged Rails. Foremost, Sears, Belknap are some other badged Rail bikes.

Doug, I am so glad I grew up in the 60's and 70's. I wouldn't trade that time for being a teen now.
